Drum until the year ends!
Mark Richards, from the miamidrum yahoo group is organizing the Virginia Key drum cicle:
Friday December 26, 2008 – 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm – Virginia Key Beach Park Dance Floor 4020 Virginia Beach Drive, Virginia Key, Miami, FL. Bring your drum. Bring your dancing feet.
There will be a fire pit to warm things up. The park entrance fee is $3 per car; but if you show your drum, they may waive the fee. Check the weather and dress accordingly. Bring your own seating.
NOT the park entrance that is used to get to Jimbo’s. AFTER the Seaquarium (right before the bridge to Key Biscayne) turn left at 2nd traffic light. There will be a small green sign in the median displaying Virginia Key Beach Park. NOAA building and SE Fisheries are on opposite sides of the entrance road to the park.
…and at Saturday 26th
Liberate your inner child & celebrate the last New Moon of 2008! – at the sandy beaches of miami beach, around or close the 79th St. Let your creativity & dreams spiral into the universe, knowing that this is a time of growing energy, newness, rejuvenation, growth, renewal, and hope.
Refresh your spirit with the ancient sounds of the sacred drums and dance with joy for the upcoming New Year!
Then the following day – Sunday 28th
Delou is having another drum and dance class at FIU
Drum circle and classes – April 2008

Broward Drum Circle
4-6PM at Fern Forest Nature Center in Coconut Creek
– Broward County has some of the best drummers in South Florida, and this is the best place to find them on a Saturday afternoon. The site is sheltered, so the circle rocks even in a downpour. I come up from Miami, and it’s always worth the trip.
Drum class with Matthew Hill – 2 PM at FIU Biscayne Campus Academic 2 Bldg, North Miami ,FL
in the second floor studio – $10
Sunday Drum circle @ Oak Grove Park, North Miami, FL
Drum Circle 3-ish till 6-ish – FREE at 159 St & NE 6 Ave in Miami, across the lake from the parking lot & playground. This is a young circle with a distinctly Haitian flavor. There are more good (really good) drummers than there are drums, so bring extras if you have them. There is some seating; but you may want to bring your own. If you want to bring kids, the playground is great (LOTS of kids – all playing very seriously); but it is across the lake from the drum circle, so if you feel that you have to be right next to your kids when they play you may not be comfortable.
Also notice th "ish" on the times. I have arrived a couple of times and not heard any drumming; but as soon as the drumming starts, the group materializes.
